Yes, used them for the 1st time out of Calgary for my late Nov/early December trip thru the Canadian Rockies. I definitely wanted a car with winter tires and I definitely needed it with the snow that fell on that trip.Has anyone used Turo for car rental? I’m thinking of going that option out of PDX in April.
How did you find the process?Yes, used them for the 1st time out of Calgary for my late Nov/early December trip thru the Canadian Rockies. I definitely wanted a car with winter tires and I definitely needed it with the snow that fell on that trip.
Mind you I have only experience Turo's once. I guess it could vary greatly like various AirBnB experiences.How did you find the process?
I've booked one for our April trip to Oregon. A Subaru wagon that will be nearly 3 years old. Great reviews about the owner. About half price of a inferior type vehicle through the car rental companies.
Thanks.Mind you I have only experience Turo's once. I guess it could vary greatly like various AirBnB experiences.
My experience and process was pretty simple. I called him when I landed and he picked up in the car at the Calgary Airport Terminal. He drove me to a mall where he explained the car and gave me the keys then I drove off. I gave him an approximate time I would return the car and meet him at the same mall. He gave me a ride to the Airport hotel where I was staying prior to my crazy early flight the next day.
We got lucky when KLM cancelled the AMS-GVA flight Jan. 22. They are obligated to get us to Geneva when originally scheduled so we are now on a normal one-stop itinerary with 1 hour 40 minutes in CDG. We still have the two stopper on the way home, but that's less critical for luggage.In this instance we will be paying 34K miles + $102 to fly to Geneva Jan. 21 - Feb. 9. This deal is naturally only available on two-stoppers: SEA and AMS on Jan. 19 and CDG and SLC on Feb. 9.
No question but in the race to the bottom of airports to transfer on international trips, I believe that CDG is better than LHR. Still, I'm reminded of "don't argue with free" (i.e. FF awards) and that we should be grateful to fly around the world basically for no cost other than a few shekels in airport fees.That's still an "Uggh" of an airport to get through though.
But last summer we read the stories that my SkyMiles alternative AMS is now no better. At any rate I'm relieved. Earlier on the outbound two stopper, Delta had changed one of the flights, slashing our Seattle layover time to a very nervous 40 minutes.That's still an "Uggh" of an airport to get through though.
This too, and they are often not available for a reasonable price vs. cash. I've relaxed my standards in that regard (from ~2 cents/mi to ~1.5) since 2020 in order to get more utilization.Still, I'm reminded of "don't argue with free" (i.e. FF awards)
